The spring round of Research Grants includes one John K. Hulston Scholarship of up to $2,500, to be awarded to a researcher who wishes to visit multiple research facilities – including the Truman Library – for their topic. Applicants should indicate their interest in the Hulston Scholarship when submitting their Research Grant applications and include a detailed project budget outlining additional repositories to be consulted and how materials at those repositories fit into the larger project.
Eligibility: Competitive proposals will evidence a clear understanding of the existing research in the field and how the proposed work adds significantly to that body of literature. Applicants are expected to demonstrate both an analytical and descriptive grasp of the project and its centrality to the Truman era.
Number of Awards: Not specified
Value of the Program: Funding is calculated on the following basis:
* $75 for any night spent in Independence, Missouri to cover lodging and meals;
* airfare based on the best advance-coach fare available;
* $100 allowance for photocopying (ground transportation, including rental car fees, will not be reimbursed).
